Welcome to Midnight Pages

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.  Don’t go back to sleep.
–Rumi

You’re awake for a reason.

Is being up at night your obstacle or your opportunity? True night owls are neuro-divergent. They were the baby who was up all night, exhausting their care-givers, waking the household.

Night owls say things like “I do my best work at night.” That might not come until years of trying to conform to the eight-hour sleep they’ve been recommended. Finally, they surrender to their nature. They say goodnight to the rest of the world, and they do their creative work.

Insomniacs on the other hand, struggle. Sleep eludes them and being up at 2 am frustrates them. A desperate need and want to sleep makes them sick, unable to focus during the day. Pills and practices don’t help. But, there is another option: consider it a season of your life, not forever. Listen to the night and see what it has to tell you. See if there’s something you’re supposed to know, or do. 

Midnight pages is a practice to help you listen to the night. It’ll help you in your creative work and let you find out why you’re up when you don’t want to be. 

Midnight Pages is a book for magic-lovers and mystics, for writers who like a little woo and for anyone ready to explore the archetypes and symbols of darkness. It’s for breaking the rules of what we’re supposed to do – so we can do what we came here to do.

This book and practice is for anyone charting a course by moonlight to where they really want to be. 

Intuition, the s/hero’s journey, automatic writing, creativity, story-telling, soul writing. 

“Finally a creativity guide for those solitary insomniacs who are most inspired in the darkness; a clever counterpoint to the insufferable 6am morning people crowd who seem to dominate the self-help genre.” 

Derek Murphy, Creativindie

Beware Unbalanced Equinox Magic

Beware Unbalanced Equinox Magic

I look up from stirring sauce and my eye twitches. The cherry tree has disappeared and the window is black.

Is the shadow beyond the glass a someone or a something?

Then everyone comes home, piling in.

Summer closing down has me suspicious and unbalanced; “off”, panicky or crotchety; disoriented. Starting and stopping things. Literally, the world tilts as I walk to the garden and it feels like falling.

Do you feel it too?

Do you need a sign? This is it. Florence Scovel Shinn was a New Thought author from the early 20th century, which was the school of thought that evolved into the Law of Attraction spirituality. I found a compilation of all her books at the thrift shop on Saturday....

Everything Means Something

I don’t care what happens to you, it means something. Never mind whether or not you caused it through your negative, out- of–the-vortex thinking. I am not talking about your subconscious childhood programming that blocks you from wealth or success or healthy...

Write About It

Write About It

When I was in my late twenties I lit a fire and burned all my journals. It wasn’t a ritual, I was disgusted by how I kept repeating the same sh*t over and over -- with my father, my relationships and with the moods that whipsawed me and made me a holy terror to work...

I am shifting my flower farm, Your Vintage Blooms to a permaculture model. I’ve already been no-till gardening, eg. I don’t disrupt the soil with turning it over to plant every spring. For the past four years I’ve let the rototiller stay broken. Permaculture goes...

Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

Sorry this might be long-ish and passionate… This week somebody told me they’d met a witch and learned a lot from her. A weird doubt came up: Is that woman witchier than me? Wait! Am I witchy enough? WTF? Witchy enough for what? Once, a guy told me he didn’t want to...

How did you get here?

How did you get here? Wicca found me when I was 24. I always knew I was looking for something. It was long before the internet so there was no such thing as “going online” and nowhere to “post” for a coven to join. And anyway, I was a solitary even then. It was just...

Hi. This post has several links. Marketers know you’re not supposed to use links because they send readers away to other sites. Whatever. You can follow the links down the rabbit hole if you want. Or skip to the spell/practice at the end. I also know links can be...
